Thanks for the advice.
I've googled the phrase "best usb mic for podcasting" and as a matter
of interest, the NT USB came out within the top 2 in various reviews.
Another slightly cheeper, but well worthwhile option according to a
few people, Is the Blue Yeti and then the even cheeper, Blue Snowball
Would you consider either of these?
What are your views on using an Olympus DS30 Audio recorder connected
via usb as a USB Mic (assuming it has that feature)?

"Best" is open to wide interpretation. How much you can afford or are
prepared to spend may well narrow your definition of best.
If you can afford it, the Rode Podcaster
<http://www.rode.com/microphones/podcaster>is well worth a look. It is
specifically intended for speech and inclusion of the headphone jack is
a nice feature.
It is a bit chunky and, I think largely for that reason, my brother
didn't like his and sold it before I could make an offer. We have one at
work and I quite like it.
There are doubtless less expensive options that will do a good job. My
experience is that cheaper USB mikes, especially those built into
headsets, produce an unpleasant sibilance but others may have found
better examples. Audacity should have no trouble finding any USB mike.

Anyone have ideas of which USB mic I should purchase for podcasting
(to be used in conjunction with Audacity)?
